He's a teacher and longtime supporter of schools--but he says 'no' to Perham levy hike
It is a dilemma for him, but retired teacher Roger Vettleson will be voting 'no' on the levy referendum for the Perham-Dent schools. For Vettleson, who taught in the Moorhead school system and retired to the Perham area, his property taxes will rise $800 a year if the levy passes--this...

Letter: There's no place for politics on the pulpit
They'll probably be found wrong as a matter of law. Let's hope so, anyway. But the pastors who deliberately broke tax laws Sunday are even more wrong as a matter of policy. Those pastors likely despise Madalyn Murray O'Hair, the infamous atheist whose challenge pushed the U.S. Supreme...

No more school referendums?

Hummel Column: No energy shortage around here
I just read about a club in London, the Club 4 Climate, that has a dance floor designed to harness the energy of people dancing on it. The principle is called piezoelectricity. Piezo is Greek for pressure. The dance floor is spring lined with crystal blocks beneath it that, when...

Other Opinions: 'No Child Left Behind' needs to be eliminated
In theory, No Child Left Behind seemed like a great idea: hold schools accountable for students' success and set high expectations for outcomes. In reality, NCLB is a disaster. The federal legislation, signed into law in 2002, sets unrealistic goals and unfunded mandates for di...
